Most of this is of course, especially applicable to the pathetic sufferers of the dreaded ASTHMA disease. The trouble with Asthma is that it seldom kills but makes a person suffer throughout his life. When we think of any Asthma patient, sitting up the whole night, unable to breath, wheezing and suffering like a wretch and cursing his own life, we thank our stars for not having been one among them. As seen today, there is hardly any cure for this disease in any known branch of medicine.
In the year 1845, a holy man happened to meet Mr. Veeranna Goud. That holy man was impressed with Mr. Veeranna's Mr.Nice Guy nature and gave him a secret formula of some miraculous "HERBS". He blessed Mr. Veeranna Goud with this gift and also instructed him to distribute this medicine "FREE of COST" to the sufferers of this dreaded disease.
The secret formula of this wonder cure was then passed to Shiva Ram Goud who later passed it on to Shanker Goud. Popularity of this cure was greatly gained during Shanker Goud's tenure. The practice flowed down to the five sons of Shanker Goud. Since then, the formula of the medicine has been found quite effective in providing a complete cure if taken by a patient for three consecutive years. It has been the practice of the GOUD family for the past 156 years to offer this medicine free to those who need it. Now the cure is called Bathini Fish Medicine.
At first, this Bathini Fish Medicine is kept in the mouth of live Murrel Fish (Channa SP/Ophio Cephalus), 2 to 2.5" in size and the fish will be slipped into the mouth of each patient. The fish is slippery, so there is no problem in swallowing it. This live fish travels, wagging its tail and fins, through the throat and negotiates the phlegm congestion, providing a 100% cure if taken for three years consecutively with the strict diet being followed according to their instructions for 45 days.
Over the last few years, the number of asthma patients have come down due to a campaign by physicians and rationalists, who termed it an "unscientific" drug and asked the family to reveal the contents of the herbal paste. The family, however, turned down the demand on the ground that the medicine would lose its efficiency.
